Romantic Listening Journals Now Available

We're approaching the mid-point of the semester, which means we are rapidly nearing the end of the Romantic era in 352. Over the past month, we've watched how our standard performing repertoire was created and listened to Beethoven and Schumann and Wagner and Verdi, but what of those composers who were important in their day but forgotten now like Louis Spohr? What of those composers who are interesting sidelights few ever experience like Anthony Philip Heinrich? These listening journals will give you a chance to peek under the hood of Romantic music and see perhaps what those living at the time thought about the music that was happening all around them. As usual, you'll find them through the blogroll on the right. Enjoy!
